I wanted to sew a playsuit or cat suit of some kind as I had some stretch lace I bought I while ago. I originally wanted to make a dress from it, I have a lot of dresses so I wanted to make something different.
Do you ever get the feeling after you sew something… like, would I ever wear this out and if so, with what. Should I just wear it as is? I will eventually but maybe with a skirt first.
Either way, this is a toile for a swimsuit I was thinking of making, like the vintage ones that had to be measured to check how high the leg length was before swimming.
I think the fit is a success so I’ll make another in suitable fabric.
Here it goes…
I mentioned wanting to make a swimsuit from this pattern which is a full catsuit pattern I drafted years ago, I made one catsuit and didn’t use it again. I thought why not try making a few swimsuits with it.
I’d like to make a few boy leg swimsuits, keeping within the vintage theme. I think they look cute and modest.
How do you like my lacy strongman suit?! It’d look nice when clubbing in heels, on the beach or on hot summer days wen it’s hot to wear “normal” clothes. Haha, there are days when I don’t give a crap and on one of those days this will make an appearance.
One last photo. This would have been a great pose if J didn’t have his thumb in the way!
